The boat ride took us too butterfly beach, honeymoon island , monkey island. We also saw couple of dolphins. It was already dark when we got out of the boat and we felt the rats jumping in our stomach. We were that hungry. Rushed to Little Italy to have the best pizza and beer . Then we took the small stroll on the beach to get the beach feels and hear the sound of the waves. The journey towards our villa was no less than the adventure. Roads were dark and it was a long ghat drive. We were feeling scared and excited both. We breathe a sigh of relief when we reached our villa where we can have our own time .
After the breakfast , we went to the beach to relax . We even decided to do the braids from the girls roaming on the beach. They look so boho and is a great way to support the locals in a tiny way. After some time , we made our way to a tattoo store. One of our friend wanted to get a tattoo done for a long time now. She wanted to get a tattoo ink done, to get the feel. We all decided to follow her and got matching tattoo from a tattoo parlor on the palolem beach. After the braiding and tattoo , we wanted to do some sea sports and kayaking seemed to be everywhere on the beach. We wanted to give it a try , and visited a shop for the same . However , the uncle there were kind enough to advise us otherwise as it was high tide. (Extremely impressed how the uncle advised us not to do it at that point though renting kayak boats is what he does for living :) would highly recommend visiting him if you are near palolem and considering kayak or similar water activity )
Finally on the beach.... Instantly fell in love with what I saw in there. My cover pic is clicked on the palolem beach. It was a great sight for my eyes after visiting North Goa all these years. At that moment , I knew I am going to come here alot more in coming years.
The second day, which was our last day at Goa, we woke up and started our morning at the beach only. after a great breakfast, we booked a scooty and planned to visit beached of the Southern Goa. A simple advice for you would be, please book the scooty or bike in advance when you are going in peak seasons. Getting a scooty is very easy at Goa. It costs at max 350 to 500 Rupees per day depending upon the season. And they demand for your driving licence for the same. We started our ride to palolem which was around 37 Km from our resort. After a long ride, we reached Palolem beach and seeing the beauty we were satisfied as it was worth the long journey that we did. we booked a shack there, had a great goan seafood lunch. enjoyed by the shack . After that we entered the water there, it was fun. There were various rides to different islands but we chose to sit by the beach and relax. You can also enjoy water activities here. This beach was mainly occupied by foreigners and Indians were very less in number here. It was clean and beautiful. After spending a great time, we headed back to our resort. On the way we visited Colva beach, enjoyed some street food there and reached our resort. We had our dinner at our resort, they made the fish of our choice. It was delicious and tasty. Took a walk in the resort at night, it was a soothing experience.
And we reached "Palolem Beach" nearly about 2.30pm. one thing, when you are heading towards Palolem Beach you see the very beautiful village 'utopia'. Palolem Beach is very peaceful place. Most of the families are visit there. And too much Russian people are come there. We also eat food in shacks.
